"One's real life is so often the life that one does not lead"

- Oscar Wilde

About this Quote

This quote by Oscar Wilde speaks to the idea that our lives are often not what we desire them to be. We might have dreams and aspirations that we never get to pursue, or we may be stuck in a scenario that we don't wish to be in. We may seem like we are living somebody else's life, instead of our own. This quote is a suggestion that we need to make every effort to live our own lives, and not be held back by the expectations of others. We must take risks and make decisions that are real to ourselves, even if they are not the most popular or standard choices. We should aim to live our own lives, and not be afraid to take chances and make errors. Eventually, our reality is the one that we choose to lead.
